Sir Keir Starmer has already launched his new plan to regain some ground on the Conservatives Party and Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He’s announced a new line-up for his shadow cabinet, with some notable absentees.

Labour leader Mr Starmer decided to reshuffle his shadow cabinet after a disappointing campaign in the recent elections.

The party lost eight councils and 326 councillors in the England local elections.

The Hartlepool by-election was also won by the Conservatives – the first time Labour hasn’t won the seat in more than 50 years.

As a result, Mr Starmer ringed the changes to his line-up, with Deputy Leader Angela Raynor given a notable demotion.

Raynor was replaced as Labour’s campaigns co-ordinator after the disappointing election results.

Instead, she’ll be shadowing Michael Gove as the new Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.

Rachel Reeves has been handed a big promotion to the new Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer.

She replaces Anneliese Dodds, who is now the Party Chair, and Chair of Labour Policy and Review.
